Beauty On A Run!

Do you ever get lost in the beauty of nature while on a run?  Last week, in the middle of my tempo run, I pulled out my cell phone from my running belt and I just started snapping.  Normally, I am lost in thought and  do not notice anything around me other than cars, people or animals.  Enjoying all the work my neighbors put into their gardens was on my mind as I chose various spots to stop and take photos.  Here are a couple of the photos that show some of the lovely gardens, flowers that I enjoy every time I lace up my running shoes:
Wildflowers in bloom on common ground

Pink and white daisies

My favorite flowers, hydrangeas

The last photo is obviously not flowers, but one of the wonderful stops I can use along my route to get a drink of cold water.  We are lucky to live in a neighborhood with a golf course and the water stops are all close to the main roads so a quick detour and I am set for a drink.


Pit stop for water!

Do you take time to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature when you are on a run?

  3. Totally wish I had places to drop for water on my runs! It would be so much easier if I didn't have to take my water belt all the time!
